Multi-screen video software company Easel TV will be giving live demonstrations of the new Curzon Home Cinema service at IBC2014 in Hall 14.
This service from Curzon delivers films into the living room at the same time they are released in the cinema.
Easel TV will demonstrate the Curzon Home Cinema website and TV platform set-top box applications, which it designed and developed using its Suggested TV platform — a cloud-based software-as-a-service solution for multi-screen content delivery with a televisual user experience. PayWizard is providing the payment fulfillment service and Microsoft Azure is providing content processing, hosting and delivery.
Curzon Cinemas launched its new Curzon Home Cinema service to create a cutting-edge Video-on-Demand service in May, giving viewers access to the best cinema at home or on the move. The service is available on Freesat Freetime, Samsung Smart TV’s, tablets, PCs and mobile devices with a roll-out plan to hit the major devices and broadcast platforms over the coming year.
Bill Scott, chief operating and commercial officer, Easel TV said: “The service we have developed for Curzon Cinema illustrates how content owners can monetise their full catalogue of assets by making them available to consumers and helping them find content they would be interested in watching. Working with PayWizard and Microsoft Azure we have been able to develop an end-to-end service for Curzon to reach a wide audience.”
